Can you post the output of the following three commands and see if they resemble mine?
(adjusted for your ip's of course)

sheevaplug-debian:~# ifconfig -a

18  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: SSH remotely then SSH locally? on: November 09, 2010, 03:16:49 PM
Is there a command line tool which I can use after sshing into the first device which I can use to access the second?

That would be ssh again. You can daisy chain from one session to the next and so on. Try it!

Not to undermine your enthusiasm for developing, but does webmin not suit your needs for administrative purposes? A minimum install perhaps and then tailored to suit?
# wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin-1.520-minimal.tar.gz
# gunzip webmin-1.520.tar.gz
# tar xf webmin-1.520.tar
# cd webmin-1.520
# ./setup.sh /usr/local/webmin

+1 here guidol

I often report to Moderators, posts that obviously don't belong. I understand time zone differences, work schedules, and life come into play in being able to administer the forum. I also understand that nothing is quicker than a human in determining the legitimacy of a post. I would propose that more moderators be allowed, with the ability to not only delete inappropriate posts, but users also.

Have a look at the new users that registered today. A pattern in their usernames no? 7 alpha 2 numeric characters mostly. Be prepared for a new onslaught of spam.

Many hands make small work!

22  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Guruplug - reduce ethernet eth0 speed permanently on: October 22, 2010, 09:00:14 AM
This will only work if you log in I think. Why not simply create /etc/rc2.d/S00SetupSpeed and put the same line in there ?

/etc/rc.local is executed in runlevels 2 thru 5 by /etc/rc*.d/s99rc.local, which is a link to /etc/init.d/rc.local

Your method would break the intent of /etc/rc*.d, and would likely be overwritten upon upgrading.

From /etc/rc*.d/README:

sheevaplug-debian:cat /etc/rc2.d/README
The scripts in this directory are executed each time the system enters
this runlevel.

The scripts are all symbolic links whose targets are located in
/etc/init.d/ .

To disable a service in this runlevel, rename its script in this directory
so that the new name begins with a 'K' and a two-digit number, where the
number is the difference between the two-digit number following the 'S'
in its current name, and 100.  To re-enable the service, rename the script
back to its original name beginning with 'S'.

For a more information see /etc/init.d/README.

Also if someone could tell me why hdparm -S 60 /dev/sdb1 -command returns with an error (see attachment) but still the hd spins down after 5minutes of idling?

hdparm provides control for devices, not partitions. Try your commands using /dev/sdb

24  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: ethernet port issues on: August 21, 2010, 11:17:48 AM
The output of the following commands would be a good starting place, from both plugs:
$ ifconfig -a
$ route
$ cat /etc/resolv.conf

If you follow their lead, you also loose the "booted led" (9:00 oclock), which is controlled here in init_setup.sh:
echo 1 > `eval ls /sys/class/leds/*plug*\:green\:health/brightness`

Best to comment everything in that file except that.

I also blacklist modules from loading.

Add these anywhere in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

blacklist visor
blacklist ipv6
blacklist btmrvl
blacklist btmrvl_sdio
blacklist bluetooth
blacklist libertas
blacklist libertas_sdio
